Samsung Galaxy Alpha
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is a mid-sized smartphone with a premium design and specs that many considered a phone that would compete with the iPhone 6. It features an aluminum frame like the new Galaxy S6, yet only has a 4.7-inch display to keep things small.
The Galaxy Alpha sports a 4.7-inch 720p HD display, an 8-core Samsung Exynos processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 12 megapixel rear camera, a fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor, and a sleek metal finish. It recently received an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop and is powered by a 1,860 mAh battery. It's available unlocked, or from AT&T. It's an excellent smaller smartphone that many may have overlooked in 2014.
